Family and Faith Magazine (Christmas Edition) - Page 3

EDITOR’S NOTE Unwrapping the Gift - It’s Christmas! Christmas is easily my favourite time of year. The fellowship, food and festivities warm the heart and remind us that among the most important things in life are family and relationships. Of course the main reason for the season is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Most persons accept that Jesus wasn’t born on December 25, but the season certainly presents an opportunity to reflect on the awesome gift that God gave humanity when He sent His only Son into the world so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but receive the unparalleled gift of everlasting abundant life. In all our giving and receiving this Christmas, it is therefore important to embrace the most divine of gifts in the person of Jesus Christ and to enjoy His incomparable love. It is in that spirit that I am pleased to present the Christmas edition of Family and Faith Magazine from the comfortable living room of a Gore home at New Harbour Village III. Christmas certainly involves fixing up our homes and enjoying the company of our friends and family - New Harbour Village gives us a nice canvas to achieve that! I invite you to turn the pages of our Christmas edition and enjoy the inspiring story of Pastor Junior Tucker and his family; see why one couple delayed sex for marriage, check out our 30 gift ideas for Christmas and much more. Unwrap our Christmas edition and enjoy! On behalf of all of us here at Family and Faith Magazine, I wish all of our readers, sponsors and supporters a delightful Christmas and purpose-driven New Year!
